Two sides of the story.

Here's a simple little tip that lots of people don't know. When I make a cardigan, I always work both sides of the front (right and left) at the same time. Ditto for the two sleeves. Here's what it looks like - you have one ball of yarn for each side, and when you work across, you just pick up the second yarn after "crossing the divide" in the middle.


There are two reasons for this. One is psychological: It's just so much nicer to think of a sweater in three parts - back, front, sleeves. Instead of having to make FIVE PIECES - back, front one, front two, sleeve one, sleeve two.

The second reason is practical. If you work both sides at once, you're less likely to end up with one side longer than the other, or a lace pattern that doesn't quite match up.

Have ya'll met Loretta, the newest member of the Loops Troops? Loretta is an expert knitter with a passion for socks. You may know her as past newsletter editor for the Tulsa Knitting Guild. She is self-described as "a little OCD" (aren't we all???) and loves to stock the shelves and make 'em look purdy. She is super-nice and can help with any stitching problem. Please welcome her next time you see her!


BTW, this sock is from the cover of "More Sensational Socks" and only uses two yarns (a multi and a solid). We also have the new book, "More Sensational Socks," in stock now. Don't miss it.

Another new book that arrived and immediately sold out (but is now back in stock): "Charmed Knits" - a complete collection of patterns for Harry Potter fans! What will they think of next?


- Shelley
